Ballsy the WOD…

Video description here.  For time:  10 minute cap:

30 and 45 Wall Balls (20/14) while one partner A holds the top Deadlift position (155/105)

Rules:

–One partner does 30 Wall Balls while the other partner does 45 Wall Balls while partner A holds the top of the deadlift position.
–Once all of the Wall Balls have been completed, then the bar may be dropped and Partner A now has to do Wall Balls while whoever is partner B has to hold the Front Rack position.  This will repeat itself with the last part as well.
–One partner has to do 30 Wall Balls while the other has to do 45 Wall Balls.  They are not sharing their repetitions
–Each team can determine who gets stuck with doing the 30 Wall Balls and who gets stuck with doing the 45 Wall Balls at each of the three different holds
–If the barbell is not being held in the proper position, Wall Balls cannot be done
–Any partial ROM Wall Balls done while the barbell is being dropped, do not count
–Wall Balls cannot be started until the person performing the hold is showing control
–If someone loses control of a ball, they can go get it and resume as long as the barbell is being held appropriately

Standards:

Rx standards are explained in the workout.  Scaled standards are as follows:

Wall Balls (14/10)
Barbell Holds (115/65)

That’s one of them,

Internal Throwdown News…

No workouts are actually being released so you can sit back down.  But what I would like are some people to volunteer for the event.  If you have been to any of our internal throwdowns, you know that they are a ton of fun.  However, events like this don’t happen without people like you.  If you care to volunteer, here are the details on what is needed:

Judges (who are familiar with CrossFit standard movements and can count up…harder than it sounds)
Judges (who can keep track of the clock)
Volunteers to collect score sheets and organize paperwork
Volunteers to move and help set up equipment
Volunteers who are up for whatever may be needed

There will be a morning shift (8:15 – 12-30) and an afternoon (12:30 – 3:15) shift.  You can volunteer for one or for both, its up to you!  But like always, the more the merrier,

Q1)  What time window would someone need to get in figure/bikini shape?

A1)  This is dependent on your starting point (muscle tone and body fat %, for example) and what your goals are. The window can range from as short as 6 weeks to 24 or higher.  For my first show, I started with a body fat percentage of 20 and it took me 12 weeks to prepare.

How long before you see the changes you are looking for when preparing for a competition?

It’s about continual improvement.  I try to progress with each show but I am new to this sport and have a long way to go.  I know that change won’t happen overnight.  It’s going to take time, effort and commitment.

If I am interested in competing, where can I find more information?

Bodybuilding.com is a great resource as is NPC News online and Muscular Development.  If you want to chat with me directly, feel free to reach out.

Thank you Sam for letting me harass you with this Q&A.  If you are looking for more information, feel free to follow Sam on Instagram here,

Sam A.  Q & A (that rhymes)…

Q1)  What is your favorite cheat food?  How often do you have it during training?

A1)  My favorite cheat meals are gluten free cupcakes from Georgetown Cupcake, plantain chips, and Sweet Green. I LOVE a good salad (yes, I consider salad a cheat meal when it’s covered in dressing and includes goodies like bacon).  Over the course of the last 3 months I’ve only had one cheat meal.  The frequency of cheat meals and the flexibility of that cheat are dependent on the shape I’m in and how close I am to a show and my current goals.

Q2)  What kind of prior preparation do you do to stay in track?

A2)  I meal prep all of my food for the week every Sunday. It normally takes me around 2-3 hours to cook and pack everything away. Generally this helps to make sure I’m on track all week long, eliminates excuses, and makes it easier to grab and go in the morning.

Q3)  If I don’t have abs and I want to get some, how strict and precise do I need to be with my diet?

A3)  We all have abs, so that’s good news, right?!  I personally don’t see my abs until I am nearing the end of my prep when my body fat is lower.  I believe genetics plays a role in the structure and composition of your abs, which we have no control over, but the one thing we can control is our diet.  For me, that’s key. If my diet isn’t on point my abs hibernate.

Thanks Sam,

The one workout to rule them all…

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the legend, it goes a little something like this:

A still young / perfect / handsome programmer wanted to come up with a fun workout for his clients who all loved him very much because of how still young / perfect / handsome he was.  He labored and toiled through days and nights, both of them uphill!  He scoured countless stacks of ancients tomes of halloween related words.  After great ordeals, this still young / perfectly handsome / handsomely perfect programmer came up with the colossal workout known as SPOOKY.  The only problem is that when it was time to write the workout down at the board, he had forgotten the rep scheme for the workout (it must’ve been all of the mental anguish).  He accidentally wrote down 6 rounds of 10 reps of everything as oppose to 4 rounds of 8 of everything.  Lo and behold, the workout, which had an original time limit of 45 minutes, was pretty undoable.  Today is stands as a great test of capacity and will and as a testament of how still young / perfect / and handsome that programmer is.

That guy is a legend,

Spolier alert:  that programmer was me,

I am legend,

Not the movie though,

Is this how you feel….

Please, please, please!  Don’t lose all control after today!  Diet in terms of your health and fitness will (and should) be a life time journey.  These 30 days were just the beginning.  Take some time to reflect on what worked and why and also what didn’t work and why.  Figure out a way to sustain this progress in the long term in such a way that you could do it without any issues.  The appropriate diet will give you the other half of what you are looking for at the gym and more!

Well done everyone,
